25-Patch Oven Mitts

To fashion the patchwork fronts of her stylish oven mitts, assistant art director Elizabeth Stumbo stitched together four 25-Patch blocks and cut two oven mitt shapes from the patchwork. She interlined the oven mitts using layers of cotton batting and heat-resistant batting. The unpieced backs of the mitts show off larger sections of the prints, which are from the Bazaar Style and Bohemian Soul collections by Patricia Bravo of Art Gallery Fabrics.

Finish Oven Mitt


1. With wrong side inside, fold purple stripe 2-3/4x40" binding strip in half lengthwise; press. Cut strip into four 10"-long binding pieces.

2. Aligning raw edges, sew one binding piece to lower edge of a mitt front (Diagram 4). Fold binding to lining side. Stitch in the ditch or hand-sew binding to lining side to secure.

3. Repeat Step 2 with remaining mitt front and both mitt backs.

4. With wrong side inside, fold a purple stripe 2x5" strip in half lengthwise (Diagram 5). Lightly press, then unfold. Fold long raw edges in to meet at center. Fold in half to align folded edges; press again. Edgestitch double-folded edge. Matching raw edges, fold in half to make a loop. Repeat to make a second loop.

5. Pin raw ends of a loop to side edge of each mitt front next to binding (Diagram 6).

6. Layer a mitt front and a mitt back with right sides together. Beginning at one bound lower edge, sew together through all layers (Diagram 7). Stitch again 1/8" from outer edges. Clip into seam allowance along curves just up to outer line of stitching; zigzag or serge seams. Turn right side out and press flat to complete oven mitt. Repeat to make second oven mitt.
